Fantasy Analysis
Season Projections
A forgotten man for a good chunk of his 2018 rookie campaign following some early struggles, Thomas made a fantasy impact during the closing weeks of the season. He racked up at least 75 receiving yards or scored in three of his last five outings as the sixth-most productive fantasy tight end in most scoring formats during that stretch. Thomas also reeled in an impressive 73 percent of his targets on the season. Since a now-healthy 34-year-old Greg Olsen is returning for a 13th year, however, Thomas will start 2019 in a backup role with little chance of operating in a timeshare. Last season he averaged 5.9 targets per contest in seven games played when Olsen was sidelined but averaged less than one target per contest during Olsen's nine starts. Thomas has all the tools - good size, 4.65 jets, huge hands and solid blocking skills - to succeed in an every-down role. If Olsen struggles with injuries for the third straight season (he has missed a combined 16 games in the last two years), Thomas has low-end TE1 value if pressed into starting duties.

Receiving: 38 Receptions, 342 Yards, 1 TD.
